Wellspring Dance To Lighten Kal Concert Band's Season With 'Dancing On Airs'

Wellspring/Cori Terry & Dancers

Dr. Tom Evans talks to Cara Lieurance about the upcoming Dancing On Airs concert, a collaboration between the Kalamazoo Concert Band and the West Michigan modern dance company Wellspring/Cori Terry and Dancers. Set for Feb. 23 at 7:30 pm at Chenery Auditorium, the free concert will feature three newly-choreographed works featuring Wellspring artists: the exuberant Minimalist Dances composed by Matt Conaway, The Solitary Dancer by Warren Benson, and the grand Incantation and Dance by John Barnes Chance. But, Evans says, the program never stays in once place too long, flitting from a Spanish dance, to selections from Chicago, to a Shostakovich waltz.
